Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Bodhi had a lump removed from his back on December 15th.
His fur is not growing back evenly.
Some spots are bald.
Any suggestions on how to encourage fur growth?

Are there any hair follicles on the skin or is it all scar tissue? I'm gonna guess if it's scar tissue, there won't be regrowth. But... It does look like there's a couple of hair follicles in the picture.

Id try biotin and putting olive oil or vit e topical on the spot to minimize the scar as much as possible. Biotin might make his nails grow faster though

I took a closer look at the picture in support of @amymeme's comment. It looks to me like that's all healthy skin, not scar tissue, so it's just a matter of time. Just glancing through Husk-Owners it looks like anything from a couple of months to several months for normal hair regrowth depending on the reporter.

Sasha had hair clipped from her leg so they could get to a vein to draw blood and has "crew cut" style hair over the area at about one month.

It's not scar tissue and I can see some faint hair follicles on parts of what looks like bald spots  below the incision line.
The shaved place on his leg where the IV was inserted during the procedure has completely grown back with hair.

Maybe tag Jennifer - she's had several growths removed in her pups, may be able to give you more first hand experience.

Yeah, @jbealer would be a good resource. My experience is the longer hair always takes longer than the shorter leg hair does to regrow but it also seems the older they get the harder it is to regrow. They shaved a spot on kenzi's neck a few months ago when she went in and that still hasn't regrown. Starting to worry that it won't due the diabetes.

Hi - Our pup Aspen had to have a patch on her back saved for a hot spot - the hair did not grow back for over a year. Don't worry too much - it will grow back. its common for Husky's to have slow under-coat regrowth.

Have you tried fish oil or salmon oil? That’s what our vet recommended for our 12 year old girl to help with fur regrowth.

He's been on salmon oil since forever.

Bodhi's vet recommended melatonin 2X a day.
She said that in spring, the dog's natural melatonin surges and that should help too.

We'll see.
